1. Choro Bandido_pc

Although it does not fit into the span of of Pixinguinha’s life and formative influences, this 1983 classic displays core melodic characteristics of the choro canção (slow choro), supported by a very sophisticated harmonic vocabulary.

The arrangement treatment is a tribute to the great Rio guitar quartet Maogani, whose lush Impressionist textures have been captured in numerous recordings including“Impressão de Choro”.
